Scott County Sheriff Proud to Announce the First Graduation of the NEW Grace Program at the Scott County Jail

Scott County-On 7-1-2022, the first graduates of the new "Grace Program" at the Scott County Jail gathered with Sheriff Goodin, Jail Commander Doug Herald, Lieutenant Becky Hollan (Special Programs Facilitator) and Shanita Flamion (Grace Program Coordinator) of LifeSpring Health Systems. The program, lasting 60 days, focuses on substance abuse education and re-entry into society issues faced by inmates once released from custody. Prior to this first graduating class, each participant is screened for suitability, ensuring the participants are selected for the special instruction at the right time in their new life of sobriety.  Ms. Flamion stressed the fact that each participant "volunteered to be part of this program without any promise of sentence reduction or special favor what so ever".  Furthermore as with all programs we offer at the Scott County Jail, no cost was incurred by tax payers in the enactment and successful execution of this program, something Sheriff Goodin stresses during each program planning meeting.  On behalf of the men and women of the Scott County Sheriffs' Office, congratulations graduates...we are proud of you!

NOTE:  The Grace Program is just one of 8 unique programs offered to our inmates while incarcerated at the Scott County Jail...from spiritual healing and cognitive mental health therapy to job and life skills training opportunities, we do our absolute best to return each to the community better than when they entered, a must-do stressed everyday by Sheriff's our responsibility to do so.
